Leaving Port

What is your favorite Port to start your cruise from?  ie: Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, Houston, etc?  Why??

Boston - because it is our home and departing out of this port is the simplest arrangement we can possibly imagine.

I like Galveston -- close enough for an easy drive (only about 5 - 6 hours) and the port is in the middle of a shopping area. Also plenty of hotels nearby, as well as the Galveston Boardwalk. For flyers, though, it is a bit of a distance from the Houston airports.

Personally I like Miami. I am a flyer so port distance really doesn't mean much to me. I found that Miami was very well organized, clean and did not feel like a bus terminal!

Is this a trick question?

Any port to start a cruise from is my favourite....c'mon.... I'm starting a cruise...Does it get much better????

I don't think you could beat the sailaway from Venice. The views of St Mark's Square and the water boats on the canals are unbeatable

Tampa Bay

My Favorite for convenience is the Port of Los Angeles or Long Beach because I can take a limo service and be at the port in 1/2 hour.

My overall favorite port is Rome because I get to spend a week or two in Rome pre or post cruise and get to cruise the Mediterranean and Europe. It is also a great starting point for transatlantic cruise ending back in the USA. This gets me time in my favorite city eating my favorite foods and 2 weeks on a ship so no jet lag when back home.

Manhattan. NY. Because we live nearby. Now about 15 min.

I couldn't agree more!
